Rep.-elect Victoria Spartz, raised in Soviet nation, says it is ‘loopy’ for Americans to need socialism right here

Rep.-elect Victoria Spartz grew up in Soviet-controlled Ukraine and noticed the “misery” that happens when socialism fails. So the incoming GOP consultant is alarmed by how the left, particularly younger folks, have embraced socialism right here in America as an answer. 

She left Ukraine on the age of 21 for America for the promise of affection and new alternatives. Yet 21 years later, Spartz says her journey has come “full circle” as socialism is once more at her doorstep. 

“[I’m] going full circle in my 42 years of life. It’s unbelievable for me,” Spartz, R-Ind., instructed Fox News in a current interview in Washington. “Of all of the countries in the world, our country put so much against this utopic socialistic idea that it’s crazy for me to see how quickly we made the turn to the left.”

“I personally lived in a socialist system,” Spartz, an Indiana state senator, instructed Fox News. “I just didn’t hear about it from my family. … I grew up in the strongest socialistic system that ever existed. The Soviet Union was probably the most advanced socialistic system. It was building communism.”

Spartz, who will succeed GOP Rep. Susan Brooks within the fifth Congressional District, says she’s alarmed by younger folks freely calling themselves “Marxists” and preaching “collective responsibility” and “collectivism.”

She finds it “strange” that younger folks would welcome extra authorities and suppression of individuality when youth usually want freedom and “no one telling them what to do.”

Young folks might not perceive that huge authorities is what creates the earnings inequalities they detest, she stated. Too many laws and taxes are obstacles for entry for middle-class people to start out their very own companies and to seek out prosperity. Less centralized authorities, she says, results in extra alternatives.

“It’s just strange to me how quickly these ideas can [take hold] especially for young people,” stated Spartz, a spouse and mom of two daughters. 

“A lot of those kids [say], ‘I’m Marxists.’ I’m like, ‘Are you kidding me? Do you even know what it means?'”

Now, Spartz is concentrated on doing the laborious work of enhancing well being care and getting down into the nitty-gritty of policymaking.

“I think the Republican Party has to do a better job delivering policies because what’s happened when we do a lot of talk, like in health care, and don’t do the work and don’t deliver a solution … we know then people get frustrated with us. They say, ‘Well, all these people just talk’ and then they vote for the other side,” Spartz stated.

“A lot of people on the Democrat side move to the very extreme left, to very crazy ideas,” Spartz added. “And I think it’s important for us to do a better job so people trust us and not really get brainwashed with utopic crazy ideas. They are easy to sell, but when they fail, it hits hard.”

Spartz talks of the exhausting work she did within the Indiana state Senate to make enhancements to well being care. It took loads of vitality simply to make incremental modifications as a result of, like a balloon, if you happen to contact one a part of the well being care system right here, one other situation pops up there, she stated.

She authored or co-authored a number of payments that centered on price disclosure and limiting well being care monopolies, she stated. “We have a monopoly problem in health care, we don’t have a competition problem,” she stated.

She stated she wrote her personal payments with recommendation from attorneys as a result of it was necessary to her to be an knowledgeable on every line of the laws. 

“I do [it] because I understand every word matters,” she stated.

Four of the 2020 well being care payments she co-wrote had been signed into legislation, together with laws to enhance value transparency on well being care companies. Another invoice Spartz authored that handed solely the Senate would have required the state to review the feasibility of restructuring the Medicaid program to a block grant and beginning a consumer-driven Medicaid pilot program.

Her total perception is that the federal authorities ought to relinquish management over well being care and permit states to have extra flexibility to arrange revolutionary fashions for care.

She firmly rejects the Democratic socialist push for “Medicare-for-All,” saying single-payer well being care can be disastrous for seniors and would result in well being care rationing. 

“A government takeover of health care … is very bad,” Spartz stated. “I mean it’s fatal to quality. The government can control price but it will be terrible for innovation and quality. Only competition brings more innovation and value.”
